General note

John (Jack) Hilton Wilson was appointed agent for Saskatchewan Government Insurance in 1949, later also selling real estate. His son, William (Bill) Wilson took over the business in 1964. Jack Wilson operated Wilson's Flour Mill from 1915 to 1925 and was a member of town council 1916-1919 and mayor of Indian Head (1926-1927). While he was mayor in 1927, he hosted Governor-General Lord Willingdon and, later that year, Edward, Prince of Wales and his brother George - both to become King later (See IH History Book p 754).
